Many veterans and their spouses do not realize that they may be entitled to certain benefits from the United States Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). If you or your spouse served in the active military service, and were separated from service under any condition other than dishonorable, you may qualify for VA health benefits and VA Basic Improved pension benefits.
Veteran benefits can be used to pay for the costs of long term care and provide financial assistance with the payment of medications and medical services, including custodial medical services. A veteran, or their surviving spouse, can qualify for improved Veteran Affairs War Time Pension, if you are eligible.
It will come as no surprise to any veteran that dealing with the VA can often be a frustrating and confusing experience, and ensuring that you receive the benefits that are available to provide for your needs is no different. We have the experience, knowledge, and commitment to veterans that enable us to be powerful advocates and steadfast allies when it comes to dealing with the VA. We know how to navigate through the complex rules and bureaucracy of the VA, and have a deep understanding of the interrelationship between veterans benefits, Medicaid planning, and other estate planning matters. We develop integrated and comprehensive solutions that maximize available benefits while preserving your assets for yourself and your family.
It is important to note that only accredited attorneys, and certain other approved individuals, can assist veterans with their claims. Attorney John D. Watts is an Accredited Veterans Affairs Claims Attorney who has met the rigorous requirements set out by the VA.
At the Watts Law Office, we proudly serve those who have served our country, helping them get the benefits and resources they have more than earned. We are armed with the knowledge and experience to be your advocate when it comes to dealing with veterans affairs. If you are a veteran, or the widow of a veteran, please give us a call to arrange for your initial consultation. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
VA Improved Pension benefits are tax free.
